Nathan is 13 months old!

Mommy is late as usual...so the 13 month milestone came and she remembered to put me on the chair!

I am BUSY. If I got paid for every item I take out of a cabinet or drawer I'd be well on my way to having college paid for! When I'm not emptying the q-tips and cough drops out of the drawers you can find me practicing walking. I still prefer crawling because it's so much faster, but in the last week I have definitely improved walking. And one of my favorite things to do is to open the back door. Especially after daddy has gone to work. I think it's my turn to go outside so I open the door and climb down the step into the garage. I have a new favorite book that has Pop-up tractors and one of my first words is "ac-or". I also love dogs and cats.

Deep thoughts...from a four year old

Mommy, I looked in the mirror today. Inside my mouth. It's not light in there. God said that there would be light inside me.

Mommy, come in the bathroom. I'm going to show you there isn't any light in me.

My new favorite food!

Don't even think about giving me a piece of an apple. I want the whole thing!

Nathan's 1 year in the chair!

I'm big and happy!
I'm always practicing standing up and sometimes I take a few steps. I LOVE to push anything around...my dump truck especially...and cruise all around the house on anything that I can hold on too.

And I love to eat! Apple slices are currently a favorite as well as cheese, grapes, and meat.

I can sign more, all done, eat, and milk so mommy, daddy and even lucas know what I want or need.

And I'm really really good at waving good bye!

Car wash!

Nathan is 11 months!

Mommy is running a little late actually posting these pictures of me! I guess I'm keeping her busy - but can you blame me for wanting to play with pretty sparkly balls that are in the tree with all those pretty lights?

When I'm not playing - or pulling - ornaments on the tree you might find me just standing around. But really, this standing thing, sometimes I just really want to practice standing. And then decide that crawling is the safer and faster way to get what I want. Unless I'm standing next to something that I can push- then I'm off!

I still love the stairs. Sometimes when Luke isn't around I go into his room and play happily and quietly with all of his toys for long stretches of time.

I love to eat. So far my record is two whole pieces of pizza in one sitting. And whatever day they gave me ham for the first time (and TONS of other new things to try!) was a very good day!

I have my four front teeth, and am working on at least four more, maybe six. Mommy tries to count when I'm laughing and my mouth is wide open.

Speaking of laughing - nobody can get me laughing as hard as Lucas. Daddy is a close second.

We Might be Moving

Just a quick update - we have put our house on the market!  In an effort to simplify our lives - and end the commuting madness - we're hoping to move over to Bentonville or Rogers, Arkansas.  While we'll miss our house and especially our friends, we are excited about this new opportunity.

So, if you know of anyone interested in a great Craftsman style home, click here!
